DevsNest Collaborator

Our first GLEE show was amazing, everyone was really friendly and we had lots of great conversations with attendees, the GLEE team and other stallholders in the Garden market. The icing on the cake though was recognition in our main category and a bonus second win...in GLEE's own words;

"Eleven ground-breaking new garden products have been confirmed as the winners of the coveted Glee New Product Showcase 2019, at a special award presentation organised and run by Garden Trade News.

Selected from hundreds of entries showcased at Glee (10th – 12th September, NEC Birmingham), the winning products were chosen by an expert panel of judges, representing independent and multiple retailers and international suppliers."
